Response of unreinforced masonry buildings

Daniel P. Abrams

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A summary of dynamic measurements are presented that illustrate relations between linear seismic demand and true nonlinear response of unreinforced masonry buildings with flexible diaphragms and rocking piers subjected to a series of simulated earthquake motions.
